Abstract

We describe the radio science experiment proposed for the Rosetta cometary mission. The experiment consists in the transmission of electromagnetic waves between the landers and the orbiter through the comet to study its internal structure. In the paper, the electromagnetic model of the comet is presented and used to evaluate the potentiality of the experiment. Various modellings of the radio wave propagation are discussed. Finally, a description of the experiment and the instrument is made.
